Yes, I’ve borrowed this statement from the Christmas song with the same name. And this concept, as the song ran through my head (over and over again after hearing it), reminded me that each and everyone of us is an artist, trading a day of our lives for what we create each day. We receive daily “clay” in the form of opportunities, connections, conversations, and moments in time to create something of meaning.
Whatever was already created this year is done, baked, and hardened. All we…Continue

I have always preached research comes first with regards to staffing, and sourcing in particular. You have to know what you are looking for and know what companies have what you are looking for. You need to be able to find and contact those people, know trends, perform talent mapping and basically find what…Continue

Many fields are experiencing shortages of talent as demand continues to rise. One way to address a limited candidate supply is by on-campus recruiting. Hiring recent college graduates helps employers gain an edge among the competition for talent since it enables them to capitalize on candidates entering the workforce and broaden their candidate supply. According to the …Continue

Recruiting fairs are an effective way to meet many candidates for your open positions, scope out the competition for top talent, and network with other recruiters. As an exhibitor, you might think that you have an advantage at such events; after all, you aren’t the one trying to impress…Continue

Like a computer with a well functioning operating system, companies that perform exceptionally well year after year have a well planned Renewable Operating System (ROS). Better than a strategic plan, an ROS creates a better way of doing business with speed, agility, and reduced effort, similar to the powerful processors in today’s technical devices.
The first step I initiate with every leader with whom I work to create an ROS starts with the current “code.” Just like rewriting an…Continue

You are investing time, money and energy when hiring, so making sure you have made the right choice is essential.
Hiring is often viewed…Continue

What if I told you that up to 10% of placed job candidates are not detected, resulting in over $1 billion in uncollected placement fees industry-wide?

While I’m all for being grateful, especially being mindful of this during this week’s American Thanksgiving celebration, I’m not too keen on satisfaction. Satisfaction can become a trap that keeps you cemented to your doorstep, allowing competitors to grab the glory, the gusto, and even some of your market share.
One of my favorite examples of this is when I asked a workshop participant, who was resistant to ideas for improving her company, if she was satisfied with her current…Continue

It’s all too easy to play the game their way. Following their rules, their pricing, their way of doing business. They are the customers, your competition, the majority of the market, and playing their game doesn’t serve most firms very well.

Last week I watched a common example of one individual serving as the intellect and conscience for another. It happened at Publix, our local grocery store, where my 17-year-old son Benjamin decided to apply for a job. Standing at the application kiosk was a couple, painfully going through the questions, discussing and debating each response. The woman, who was the one applying for a job, was insecure answering the questions on her own, instead, running each one by “her man” as she referred…Continue
